BLOOMINGTON — A new restaurant featuring seafood and sushi is opening up at the site of the former Lucky Garden in southeast Bloomington.
The Tasty Crab, at 706 S. Eldorado Road, will open on Wednesday, serving lunch and dinner seven days a week.
The restaurant will offer Cajun-style boiled seafood and a full-service bar, said proprietor Ming Zhuo.
"I think we will be the first one in Bloomington-Normal. Hopefully, people will like it," said Zhuo.
Sushi was a popular offering of Lucky Garden, so Zhuo said his restaurant will also feature a sushi bar. Lucky Garden closed about seven years after it opened in 2009 at the site that had been a China Buffet location.

The Tasty Crab menu features a long list of seafood, including clams, crab legs, lobster tails, mussels, oysters, and shrimp, as well as catfish and tilapia.
The new restaurant will seat up to 120 people and employ 12 to 13 people, said Zhuo.
Hours will be from from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 4 to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday; from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 4 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and from noon to 9:30 p.m. Sunday.
Lunch prices range from $10 to $15 and dinner entrees from $20 to $25, said Zhuo.
